Variations:

In small spaces the slides are done to the side every 4 counts.

In large spaces students can slide randomly any where in the area. This mixes up the students more so they can interact with a greater number of students when pointing to a classmate on "You like to Move It!"

Students can do the hand actions without the jumps during the I like to Move It section.

Students can jump in place instead of turn in a circle on the Bop, Bop, Bop section.

Students could do the same pose each time.

Assessment Ideas:

Students must pose low on the first post, medium on the second post and high on the third pose.

Partners create poses for each of the three poses. Level changes can be part of the directions.
